WOYWW: Angels Watching Over Me!

Here is my entry for the messiest desk on 
My journal in the middle (courtesy of several cups 
of Starbucks coffee!),
on the right of it is a USB with the 2nd episode 
of Downton Abbey 4, courtesy of my niece,
on top of that is my son's new design of a small notebook
the little yellow bottle is Pyralvex
 (because I have a little sore
on my tongue I am nursing diligently),
and on the left, my little painting for yesterday's
first post for 31 Days.

"For to His angels He has given command about you
that they may guard you in all your ways."
Psalm 91:11
I don't think much about angels,
but I do know they are nothing like 
the cherubic images we see
in figurines or children's books!
They are WARRIORS!!!

I like to think of having my own set of warriors
following me and guarding me-
or at least one of them anyway!!!

There are a whole lot of verses 
about angels in the Bible,
273 to be exact.
The word "angel" comes from the 
Greek aggelos which
means messenger.

God sends angels to protect us (Exodus 23, Psalm 34:7),
patrol the earth like watchmen in the night (Zech. 1:10),
remove dangers (Mt. 13:14),
and send God's messages to us.
Perhaps we don't recognize their voice
like Joseph or Job,
but they minister to us the same way
they ministered to Jesus after the 
devil tempted Him in Matthew 4:11.
We can read in Hebrews 1:14 that
angels are ministering spirits
sent to serve those who will inherit salvation.

Once I was very near an accident.
A truck crashed into a car in front of him.
The car was right beside us and could have
veered towards us.
My husband was watching helplessly
from the rear view mirror as he saw the truck 
bump the car.
I heard the crash and turned to see the car's hood
crushed underneath the big truck in front.
Amazingly no one was hurt in this accident! 

I think angels were at work there!
Thank you Lord for the warrior angels you send to 
protect us and our loved ones,
and also minister to us when we need it!

    Lovely desk Patsy but you're going to have to work harder than that to achieve Messiest Desk of the Week, lol! Love the angels artwork and the stories you shared, we all need a guardian angel that's for sure.

  17. I guess I'll have to wait until January to view Downton Abby Season 4. Great art.

  18. I love the idea of viewing angels as warriors than little cherubs. That makes them far more meaningful to me. Great art as always! I don't think you win the prize for messiest desk though. You are in the top 10 though!

  19. love this, and nice seeing how it started and how it finished. i believe angels are always watching over us Lx

  20. Love my Angels. DH did and in depth study on them and preached for about three weeks on the subject - fascinating!
    glad you're enjoying DA - I love it, do you think Lady Mary will match up with Tom?!?!?!

  21. What a beautiful post with beautiful, special angels. And I like the way you view angels as warriors. That really makes sense. Thanks for sharing your angels and the meanings. Thank God you were saved from the accident. Have a wonderful week. Rasz #89

  22. I am so thankful for God's angels that He uses to help and protect us! Just this morning, my youngest daughter prayed with me about a situation we were facing, and asked God to send His angels to help.

  23. Your work inspires so many to focus on the One who created us.
    This is beautiful. We thank God for you and hope to see you again next week.
